Kroger - I'll admit, it is a decent week!

While this week is not as smokin as the one where we could get free boxed potatoes and mac and cheese, I have to admit there are some pretty darn good deals to be had.  I did a small unplanned run (pictured above) that was not great, but I hope to figure out what coupons I have to spend and how to make the best of them for the remainder of the sale.

Like most mega sales at Kroger, this one requires you to buy 10 participating items to get $5 off instantly.  You MUST buy in groups of 10 to get these prices (not just 10 or more).  To keep track, I suggest using hand carts in a regular shopping cart or reusable shopping bags to keep track of mega and non mega items.

So the on to the HOT matchups!
Prices listed are AFTER the mega offer (so I am assuming you are buying in groups of 10, if not, you need to add .50 back to each item!  If you miscount, the service desk is usually good at letting you add the missing items to get your $5 back, so don't be afraid to ask!)

*Ok, I need to snag a few other prices on the cleaners on Pledge and Scrubbing Bubbles etc that are part of the promo that I know some members of Houston have coupons.  When I get those I will add to this list!

If you find yourself at 9 items and you want something cheap, you can grab one of these candles to get you to 10 items.


*Some coupons listed in match ups are regional to some free papers available in select areas of Houston. For this reason, I tried to include lesser value alternatives that are more mainstream for those without access to those papers.  

*And finally
I know some of you will notice in my picture I purchased Clorox Bleach and toilet bowl cleaner.  I found some coupon booklets at the service desk at one of my stores.  Inside this coupon book was $1 off Clorox toilet bowl cleaner as well as 1 coupon for buy 2 Clorox Toilet Bowl cleaner get free Clorox bleach
The toilet bowl cleaner was part of the promo priced at $1.78 or $1.79.  The Clorox bleach was NOT part of the promo and was priced at $1.99. I used 2 $1 coupons and 1 free coupon to get all 3 for $1.56 (or $1.58) total :D

**Also, for some of you, double check your ads, I did notice a few ads around town with better pricing on the Green Giant veggies, the Jet puffed, and the Swanson broth!  Be sure to check a few stores around your area, you might have a cheaper price just a few blocks up :D

Would love to hear the scenarios all my readers come up with :D

*There are also rumblings of a Campbell's soup catalina. It does NOT include the Cooking soups that are on the Mega but does include tomato and Chicken noodle which are currently $.77 each.
It is confirmed buy 5 get $1.50, buy 7 get $2 and buy 9 get $2.50 but it might also be buy 3 get $1
(It comes out better to buy less on this cat deal!)

Don't understand my lingo? Go here.

I have a few corrections and additions to make but my phone is not letting me will update once I am not mobile
Reach is actually a bigger money maker, I guess being tired and trying to watch mirror mirror was a bigger distraction then I thought

Kroger off 290 and Cypress Springs is having a grand opening sale... instead of the canned veggies being 50 cents a can after the $5 off 10 items, they are 29 cents a can. Limit 20 per transaction.

I got the home mailer yesterday, and just started putting together scenarios... it helps that the $1/$5 Natural Foods store q works with the Annie's and Honest mega items too! And it looks like the free Ball Park franks are participating items too!

Oh, and the Dove Men's bodywash counts towards the Saving Star Unilever deal!

If you purchase 8 of the jello items in one transaction, will two $3 catalinas come print or do you get $3 when you purchase 4 or more?

Stephanie Jensen said...

it is 4 or more so you will only get one
